You will be amazed with yourself and your body when you put some effort into your health. Setting five year goals for your 10 year plan may seem a little lofty now and could be difficult to wrap your head around. However, the five year goals allow you to set larger goals for yourself without feeling like it’s not manageable.
For example, within five years of my 10 year plan, I want to reach my goal weight and have a body fat percentage of 16 (or less). Sure, I could probably accomplish this in a year but it would require a majority of my focus. My main objective for my 10 year plan is to find balance. If I put that kind of time constraint on myself, I could falter in other areas of my life and perhaps even become burned out with the fitness hype. So when you are coming up with five year health goals, think of achievements that seem a little out of reach and require a longer timeline. If you accomplish them well before the five year mark, great! During this process, just like with your relationships, it’s important to continuously check in with yourself and assess the progress you are making with your 10 year plan.
Like I said, your body can do amazing things. Now is the time to commit to making some big changes. Always wanted to run a marathon? Add it to your five year goals. What about compete in a body building competition? Add it in there too.
